Hot Tub Covers Clarington
Clarington was known as The Town of Newcastle from 1974 until 1994, when the it was changed to its present name which was derived from a combination of Clarke and Darlington. These two townships were merged with the Town of Bowmanville and Clarington was born! This historical city has a population of 85,000 and is located in the Regional Municipality of Durham. Home to the municipal offices is the community of Bowmanville, which is the largest in this municipality. Clarington also makes up the east end of Greater Toronto. Some of the major employers in Clarington are General Motors (in Oshawa), the Darlington Nuclear Generating Station and several other large sized manufacturers such as the Bowmanville limestone quarry and the cement factory. However, the majority of residents travel to Toronto or the western portion of the Durham Region for work.
